Las Vegas Market Closings and Momentum
REOs have declined dramatically this past year and are now only about 10% of the closings in this market. However, they seem to have leveled off with a very slight increase in the available REO properties this past month! It’s good to see an increase here since Greater Las Vegas only has an average of 1.2 months of SFR inventory compared to 2.7 months of inventory at this same time last year.
